Other Games, TV & Books
In the new Wild Hunt Crown Crates there are three antlered caps that all look quite similar to each other. Somehow, I managed to win all three. I was sitting at my desk wondering what on earth I could create out of these hats and then I remember the Lossoth from Lord of the Rings Online (Still one of my favourite games!) Lossoth is Sindarin for Snow Horde, the people of the far north of Forochel, pictured below, who I’ve lossely based this character outfit off. I’ll definitely be adding more outfits with these hats as it would be a shame to never use them, as I’m sure we’ve all ‘won’ at least one of them from the Crown Crates.
Hirvi-heimo meaning Elk Tribe in Lossoth, their outfits are usually coloured blue, orange, green, grey & shades of yellow, khaki & beige. I loved these people so much in LOTRO, I spent half of my time there and renamed my character & always dressed her in appropriate winter gear.

“Those are Thenns at our walls. They eat the flesh of the men they kill!“
The Thenn Warg is a character from the Game of Thrones TV series who still haunts me to this day. Thenn’s are cannibal wildlings that Jon Snow runs into on his adventures at The Wall. He is wearing the Winterborn Shaman Costume which has these great bird skull epaulets, suitable considering he is a warg like Brann, who has visions of the three eyed raven. Unfortunately this character was completely made up for the series, as there is no Thenn Warg in the books.

-Ragnar Lothbrok, Vikings
I’ve been watching alot of Vikings lately to cure my Game of Thrones cravings and I’m beginning to think Vikings might currently be my favourite. It follows the tale of Ragnar Lothbrok and his adventures raiding the south.

“The Tempest does not play favourites”
Though I’m not a fan of superhero movies, as a child I loved the cartoons and was completely obsessed with Storm. I thought she was just so beautiful, an elegant and powerful space goddess who could control thunder and lightening, what’s not to love?
Storm has gone through alot of different designs over the years, I decided not to follow one in particular but just to work with basics. She has white hair and eyes, and generally wears black or white clothing with a golden trim. I decided to put her in the dark seducer costume, available at champion level 60.
The Oracle Eyes is one of my favourite items, especially for ESO vampires. The body & face markings pack came out at the start of the month and was more exciting to me than the homestead update, as I love how Body Markings can change an outfit.

“The Queen of Hearts, she made some tarts, all on a summers day…”
Hearts Day is coming up soon, I’ll be creating a few more outfits inspired by love this week. I don’t usually like to admit it, but I just LOVE Valentines Day, ever since I was a little girl, I thought it should be so much more special than other holidays, including Christmas.
In saying that, I’ve never really had a chance to enjoy Valentines Day. I’ve never really seemed to have a man in my life around February for whatever reason, I suppose when I do get a chance to enjoy Valentines Day someday, it will be so much more special.
Now, enough Valentines Day dreaming and back to my outfit, The Queen of Hearts hairstyle is the Wavy Triple Braided Updo, a hairstyle that was in the Crown Store for only a couple of days in January. I was hesitant to purchase it, but eventually caved. I’ve never really known what to do with it, but it seems to look nice on large dresses, perhaps I’ll attempt a Marie Antoinette outfit next?

“I do not want your pearls, and jewels, and fine clothes; but if you will love me…”
-The Frog Prince, Brothers Grimm
HEARTS DAY IS APPROACHING! And what better way to kick start it than with a handsome ‘Frog’ Prince. As you might have noticed, I have a lot of trouble dressing Argonians, it’s something I’m working on (there are only so many toons you can make/delete at a time!) If I make a mistake with one, I’ve wasted an entire character slot and my deletes are usually always used up.
This charming swamp dweller is wearing the Lion Guard Elite costume, from the Armoured Knights pack found in the Crown Store, along with the Topaz Circlet that costs 200 Crowns, I was somewhat annoyed that the argonian version of this circlet was selling separately to the Human version in the store, same with the a lot of other items – I mean why can’t humans have the Khajiit hairstyles? The ‘Crest with Pony Braid’ and the ‘Long Elven Braid’ would look excellent on some of my ideas if only they weren’t restriced to Khajiit. Perhaps they’ll release human versions of these great hairstyles oneday? It’s one of those ‘Shut up and take my money’ situations.

I tried to create this outfit a long time ago however I just didn’t have enough dyes to bring it to justice. After months of questing, dailies and dolmen grinding I’ve finally come up with a Jasmine I’m happy with. Her outfit is Necromancer Blue, a rare dye you will receive from defeating Molag Bal in Coldharbour. You will need to be level 50, complete main quests in the Harbourage and then the main quest in Coldharbour. It is no small task but was very worth it in the end. I’ve chosen the Orsinium Ponytail and the Scarab Circlet, the colour matches so much more than the bulky Azure Brow to Temple Circlet which I received from a Crown Crate.

“Nonsense, child. If you’d lost all your faith, I couldn’t be here. And here I am.”
I must admit, I feel somewhat guilty creating Disney costumes for ESO. I enjoy creating & photographing them, but the lore in Elder Scrolls is so wonderful with a great variety of characters, I feel I should be focusing on that instead.
This is my lovely Cinderella, complete with a silvery blue dress & glass slippers. Although in the movie her dress was white, the toys & images always picture her with a beautiful blue ballgown. Either way, she’s a darling. I adore Cinderella, she’s just so lovely.
